(snip)
Bhuiyan, the lone survivor of Stromans attack, is now trying to save his life. After the attack, Bhuiyan told the New York Times that he spent his time simply struggling to survive in this country. But pulling on his profound capacity for forgiveness, he has spent the last several months petitioning Texas to spare Stromans life. When asked why, Bhuiyan said his Islamic faith taught him not to seek vengeance and that what Stroman did was out of ignorance about Islam:

In response to Bhuiyans efforts, Stroman had this to say:

Q What do you think of Rais Bhuiyans efforts to keep you from being executed?

A Yes, Mr Rais Bhuiyan, what an inspiring soulfor him to come forward after what ive done speaks Volumesand has really Touched My heart and the heart of Many others World WideEspecially since for the last 10 years all we have heard about is How Evil the Islamic faith Can beits proof that all are Not bad nor Evil.

4. Have you seen the video 'Jesus Camp'?
It's free and you might like it. There are crazies in every religion. Oodles of examples of Christians hating Islam as it turns out! By the way, I am related to several normal looking Christians that have zero tolerance for anything but Christianity...go figure!
